Globe University Librarian Celebrates National Library Week

Woodbury Campus Librarian, Olivia Moris honors the library by hosting events throughout April

National Library Week is next week, April 8-14! Globe University-Woodbury campus will be celebrating in the library with an “April Madness” bracket to determine the greatest villain in history. Stop by the library every day next week to vote for your favorites! If that is not enough incentive, we’ll also be handing out treats to celebrate the fact that we love our library.

Reflecting on our library is a terrific way to identify how the library can help you:

The library has access to thousands of books, magazines, and articles to help you with your research needs. The library is the home of your (awesome!) librarian; I love to help find information, format papers, develop a thesis, write proper citations and so much more.

The library is a great place to study. It can be a place to take a break; curl up in our comfortable chairs and read a magazine. You can also use it as a convenient space to meet as a group for a class project.

Did you know that the library is home to not one, but two book clubs? If you love to read, and to discuss what you think, ask the librarian how to join one of our clubs. This month, the Book Worms United are reading The First Part Last by Angela Johnson, the Brainiacs are reading To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Visit the library for more information.

April is also National Poetry Month. The librarian, along with our resident writing instructor and poet, Paula Cisewski, will be hosting a poetry reading in the library on Thursday, April 26 at 12:30 p.m. in the library with refreshments provided.

We are still looking for students, faculty and staff to participate, to sign-up contact Paula Cisewski at or Olivia Moris at

Thursday, April 26 is also National Poem in Your Pocket Day. The goal of this day is to carry a poem with you on that day and share it with anyone who asks. In the week leading up to the event, the library will have a selection of poems available for anyone who would like to carry one in their pocket. Stop by to choose a favorite!
